    At what age can you put ducks out on there own on a pond? I have khaki cambelss. They are just now getting there feather's, so I know it is to early.

    I would say around 12 weeks old, just to be on the safe side. They could probably be put out there earlier, but they'd still be quite small.

    If not raised by mom they are supposed to be at least 2 months old. We had ours out swimming at 2 months, if you think it is too cold and they can't warm themselves then not a good idea to have them out.
